Autumn colours

I spent the last couple of days walking around Paris with friends, meaning hardly any time to prepare my usual Monday post. Here are just some autumn impressions.  

You may have heard of some manifestations and strikes in France going on - more or less. One consequence is obviously that the glass scrap has not been collected for a couple of days. It may be interesting to see what kind of bottles normally would have gone in to the glass collector.








Something happened with my blog, while I was personally absent from blogging: My blog was mentioned as a “Blog of Note”. The result has been a tremendous boom of visitors and “followers”. I feel of course very much honoured … and amazed by the impact that such an “award” may have!!

Hej peter,
Ja vi är ju lite förre häruppe ;-)
I helgen försvann den gyllende tiden
och vi övergick till en grå med små
käcka inslag av rost och vin ;-)

Ha en fin vecka!

Congratulations on being a "Blog of Note"! That's wonderful, and well-deserved, Peter.

I am glad you got a chance to be out and about in Paris (I had guests this weekend, too, and was at many of the spots you have photos of here), and the fall colors you caught are gorgeous.

Be well!

Congratulations on your award Peter. How wonderful that your blog was chosen, but of course it would be!

I'm laughing at the class recycling in the last photo. Last summer when we stayed at the apartment, Melissa and I cringed when we had to take our "stash" to the courtyard to drop them in, one by one. Hope the neighbors weren't counting. I rather thought the wine bottles here were from the protestors! :)

Hope things are back to normal in Paris soon. I"m sure it's been an inconvenience. I have friends that had some flights cancelled withing France so had to cancel their whole trip, just two days before they were to leave for Paris.

Ruth said...

Peter! I missed that you got Blog of Note!! Congratulations, I am so proud and tickled for you! It is high time you received this well deserved honor. Fantastic. :D

Lovely Paris in the yellow trees. Even the bottles are interesting.

Hello Peter,
Your blog is artful and informative. Thank you for sharing it. I plan to use it as a reference for selecting places to visit when I come to Paris.
Have you considered transforming it into a book?
